    The Grimm Brothers Spectaculathon---does anyone have a breakdown on which parts can easily be shared? We made a quick switch to this yesterday and I need any advice or suggestions on how you made the show a success! Thanks in advance!

    I used this spreadsheet breakdown to help when doubling some roles. Hope it's helpful to others.

    Cool spreadsheet! 

    Who plays what role is going to be determined by how many actors you have. 

    If you have only 5, then you should follow what it says in the stage directions (Narrator 2 becomes Enchantress, etc...) 

    As soon as you get to 6 actors, you have more flexibility and have more options. 

    By the time you get to about 8 actors, you can do it any way which makes sense for your kids.

    Love the spreadsheet, Kate!

    I frequently made spreadsheets like this for shows rehearsed in class.  Beyond the obvious advantages when casting, it made finding someone to jump in when a classmate was absent really easy.
